Observations, Logical Assumptions and Proposed Community Values.
“...Peace is the realization of wholeness and can be created by harmonious and balanced relations.” Adapted from Article 11 B) Revised Earth Charter 8/11/98
1. There are observable processes by which the biosphere sustains life and people have acquired the ability; and have destroyed, intervened, altered, manipulated, exploited, contradicted or interfered in less efficient and often unproductive or avoidable ways. Thus, revisiting the allowed abuses and responses to abuses remains essential.
2. Poverty, unnecessary violence and suffering can be prevented or reduced with improved human behavior, education, conflict resolution, compassion and fairer distribution systems.
3. Constitutional amendments, declarations of rights, international laws, treaties and ethical value systems face ratification and greater enforcement needs that foster caring values.
4. We share a reverence for everything. All matter, living and non-living has intrinsic equal value.
5. Everyone has a duty to advance the goals of justice for all, create the context of sustainability, and to contribute to the creation of world peace. We value and encourage responsibilities or tasks that improve the quality of life or present us with opportunities to co-exist in peace.
6. Protecting, restoring, and preserving the integrity of the planets ecosystem is a critical priority.
7. Advocates of sustainability work to adapt industrial/technological industries and social designs, and lifestyles to enhance, promote, protect and preserve life and the systems upon which life depends.
